Uncle John's Band had to be spliced in because some idiot had used it as filler
on a different disk. It occurs 10 seconds into UJB....
Not much to add beyond all the superlatives posted on other pages/versions by so many fans. It's a truly special, powerful, awesome show. But I wanted to comment of the lack of soundboard recordings for this era. One reviewer elsewhere mentions Owsley being unavailable, presumably because of serving time for his (more major) bust. But he actually was out of jail for a month or so-June- ("Bear" page 134), yet still was probably not with the band on the east coast for this show, I'll speculate.
Regardless, I heard (or read) in the '70s and '80s that the reason there is a 9 or 10 month period in 1970 with mostly no soundboard tapes was NOT because the band wasn't recording the shows, but because the master tapes were stolen, or lost...or both...in late '70 or early '71. I think this was mentioned in Hank Harrison's first "Dead Book", but I can't be sure, and my copy is long gone. If anyone can confirm or dispute this with better, solid information, that would be great.
This show has an aura of timelessness about it. What a jeweled relic! Hats off to Ken and Judy Lee! We are all so indebted to you.

I agree. This is The set. NFA, Easy Wind and Stephen are unreal. Imagine the final Eleven having been here rather than two months earlier.
